Clara is a caring person at heart, and by nature. If she sees a young child upset or scared, she's going to comfort them and try to make them feel better, regardless of who it is. She couldn't walk away from the Doctor before giving him that soothing speech just like she couldn't walk away to the TARDIS from a scared Rupert. That's what makes her a character someone can look up to, and a brilliant character at that in my opinion. She should just be allowed to be Clara in this series, she's already The Impossible Girl, I'd hate to see her get another title. Clara's been so brilliant this series because she doesn't have a mystery hanging over her, she's just being seen by the majority as Clara, so having something else about her really would just ruin it for me.

I hope there is nothing 'to' her character. She's already had that with the The Impossible Girl stuff, and it'd just seem a bit gimmicky to me. I like the idea of just a regular human being thrown into dangerous and mental situations and doing amazing things and growing as a person. Having something about her again would ruin it for me.

For the first time in a while, Doctor Who isn't my favourite show on TV. I find that quite sad, how hooked on it and how much I loved it, and now I just find myself not as interested these days. There's only a couple of things keeping me interested at the minute. I'm sticking with the series, and hoping this changes for me, because believe me, I enjoy loving it much more!

This episode felt really grounded, and smaller scale, and it really worked to create an eerie atmosphere. I also liked that it had a smaller cast, and had no connection to the arc, as it made it feel more separate. It had some great scenes, and surprises, I personally believe that Clara and Orson are relatives, and I love the end scene with the twist of it being the Doctor as a child. Everyone was on fine form this episode too, Peter, Jenna, Samuel, Moffat, Douglas Mackinnon and Murray Gold, seriously, that piece of music at the end is hauntingly beautiful! I also love how much they're making use of the TARDIS this series, and episode, using the stairs more and the upper level of the console room. As well as the underneath part which was used a lot in Matt's era. Really reinforces the bigger on the inside aspect. Listen feels really different, it was nice to see them try something new, because it really worked.

@Planet of the Deaf People don't react exactly the same way all the time. He's probably sick of people talking about him killing people, and he mentioned he doesn't like people's misconceptions of soldiers, that all they do is kill people, when they do more than that. Clara behaves differently probably because she's just as nervous as he is, she clearly likes him, and people get tongue tied or blurt out the wrong thing all the time when they're really nervous. Like Clara said, her mouth has a mind of its own, she just seems to talk without thinking when she's around a man she really likes, which is quite common.

Listen is one of my favourite episodes of all time. It's rekindled my love for Doctor Who, and reminded me why I love it so much. I'd been going through the motions watching this series, only really staying interested for a couple of characters that have been carrying the stories in my opinion. But Listen made me sit up and take notice, it was stunning across the board and a very powerful episode. It's just an outstanding piece of television, from start to finish. Plenty of humorous moments, particularly "Have you got your own mood lighting because frankly the accent is enough" gets me every time, it's Capaldi's reaction to, and his double take, just priceless! XD But this episode is just amazing. It's funny, creepy, dark and all the while tells a beautiful story and delivers a messages to us all. The characters are outstanding; I really want to see more of Danny, because Samuel proved how good he is when he got more meatier material as Orson, and was actually quite intimidating when he pushed Clara for answers just before he left. He's got all the makings of a brilliant character, and I hope that potential is not wasted. The Doctor is good, you can see how this monster under the bed thing has haunted him, and he's been driven mad by it. His stubbornness mixed with his curiosity nearly got him killed in the end, which really hammed home how much he needs someone to stop him when he goes to far. Because if he's got no one there to help him he'd probably end up dead somewhere. Clara is just amazing again, I've ran out of superlatives for Jenna Coleman, her acting is just freaking incredible. Her face as she's grabbed the Doctor's foot just tells the whole story, just wow. It's a pleasure to watch Clara continue to grow over the course of this series, and Jenna is showing how much of a loss she'll be. The speech at the end is without question my favourite scene from the history of Doctor Who. It's the closest I've ever come to getting fully emotional at TV. The dialogue is brilliant and just feels so real, everyone can relate to it, we've all be scared of something under the bed, or behind us etc... But the message of not letting fear stand in your way, using that fear to do amazing things and utilise it is just amazing. Jenna delivers it beautifully, with such a soothing, calm tone. I just love it, it's inspirational, uplifting and sends out such a positive message as Doctor Who comforts every child out there who's afraid. My favourite scene by a million miles, accompanied with a beautiful piece of music from Murray Gold, stunning. The dialogue is perfect, it's delivered perfectly, and it's just a beautiful scene, that sends out a real positive message. I love it. 

“Listen. This is just a dream. But very clever people can hear dreams, so please, just listen. I know you’re afraid, but being afraid is alright, because didn’t anybody ever tell you? Fear is a superpower. Fear can make you faster, and cleverer, and stronger. And one day, you’re gonna come back to this barn and on that day, you’re going to be very afraid indeed, but that’s okay. Because if you’re very wise, and very strong, fear doesn’t have to make you cruel or cowardly, fear can make you kind. It doesn’t matter, if there’s nothing under the bed, or in the dark, so long as you know it’s okay to be afraid. So listen, if you listen to nothing else listen to this. You’re always gonna be afraid, even if you learn to hide it. Fear is like, a companion, a constant companion always there, but that’s okay, because fear can bring us together, fear can bring you home. I’m gonna leave you something just so you’ll always remember; fear, makes companions of us all.” 

Sends shivers down my spine just reading it. I can't praise this, or the episode enough. Absolutely magnificent. Doctor Who at its absolute best, not a bad performance to be seen.

I still prefer The Crimson Horror to Robot of Sherwood. I think that's Gatiss' best episode, all the characters were spot on and the story was really good. Mrs Gillyflower was a top villain, and her daughter was a brilliant, sympathetic character. Plus it had Dan Starkey which bumps it up, that man is a comedy genius!

I enjoyed Robot of Sherwood because it's rewatchable the jokes are timeless, the characters are terrifically written and the acting was brilliant. I don't mind that the plot wasn't particularly huge, because the characters more than made up for it with their chemistry and humour. I still love the scene with Clara and the Sheriff.

I'm guessing that the family heirloom is the thing Clara wears on the lapel of her jacket. And I'm going to guess that the "meet myself" line is Danny to the Doctor about meeting his child self (I predict that that's who the little kid Clara is with in the trailer is).

Were the ever any (and if yes, many) complaints about Karen Gillan's accent when she was on the show? She has a great accent too. I'm curious though, because I don't think she ever spoke as fast as Capaldi, so I was curious as to whether it's just Scottish in general or Capaldi in particular.

I think we know what Capaldi's Doctor would call the people complaining about his accent, to quote him from Robot of Sherwood "You pudding headed primitive." I like how he used pudding in his insult again, nice to see some consistency in his insults!

I love Capaldi's accent, it really helps him to be an authoritative figure and command respect; when Capaldi starts ranting at you, you listen! I'll admit, there are some things that I do miss on first viewing. For example, I missed the ornamental plant stand joke from Robot of Sherwood when I first watched the episode. But I caught it on second viewing, which is the beauty of Doctor Who; I was always going to rewatch the episode anyway, and by rewatching an episode, I pick up things I didn't catch the first time, so it's win win I find. So, I don't have a problem with Capaldi's accent, yes, I may miss the odd line or two that he says, but I don't mind, it's not enough for me to cause a fuss about. as I rewatch the episode. But I can see why more casual viewers who only watch the episode once, be it on broadcast, iPlayer or from record have a bit more of a problem with it, as they're not huge fans watching every episode however many more times. So if they miss something, they do miss it, so it must be a pain to rewind it. Capaldi does talk fast at times, so some things can slip under the radar. Doesn't bother me though, but I can understand why people have issues. Nothing against Capaldi though, I love his accent! :)

 Nice to see Douglas Mackinnon directing this one, I was happy to learn that he was working on this series. I loved the direction in Cold War; he captures the tone and atmosphere of the episode perfectly, and really makes it look claustrophobic. He's great with close ups too, he's just great. Douglas is one talented man, and I'm sure he doesn't fail to deliver here.

If I had to pick one word to describe how I feel prior to viewing this episode, I'd have to go with intrigued. This episode, right now, to me, seems like something really different and unique. I really have no clue about what's going on with it, and that's good, I love being surprised by TV shows, I try to avoid huge spoilers for any tv show I watch. And I found I enjoyed them much more, shows like Agents of SHIELD, The 100, Elementary, all shows that I don't know anything about until I see them on screen. And the surprises they throw at me is great, so I try to see less spoilers with Doctor Who now, I've been doing it since the 50th, and I loved the surprise more than prior knowledge. Elementary is a show that can, at times, be more of a character study and move the plot to one side, and it's made Jonny Lee Miller's Sherlock one of my favourite characters on TV, because he's so well rounded, and has plenty of development. So a character episode for a new Doctor is a good move from Moffat in my book. Anyway, back to Listen! I'm just really intrigued to see it. While there's every chance that it could disappoint, I admire Moffat for (seemingly, these are only predictions) trying something new with the type of episode. It seems like something different, and I hope it's something enjoyable. It's nice to hear Big Sam gets more material, he's a great actor and it's great to hear he's going to get a chance to display that. Plus Peter and Jenna will, I'm sure, star as per.  Like I said, if I had to pick one word to describe my feelings in the build up to this episode, It'd have to be intrigued. Looking forward to it! :)

Night Terrors is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. I love Matt's Doctor in it, he's great with Alex and George. I love how we get to see Amy and Rory doing stuff by themselves, and we saw more of how great a pairing they were, their banter was brilliant. They were hilarious together, and Karen and Arthur have great chemistry.



{Rory groans}


Amy: What?


Rory: We're dead, aren't we?


Amy: Eh?


Rory: The lift fell and we're dead.


Amy: Shut up. 


Rory: We're dead. Again! 



I love Rory's sense of humour. It's the main thing that makes him relatable to me. He's hilarious! Very sarcastic and I love the facial expressions he pulls in reaction. Arthur is a great comedic actor. He's freaking awesome! I love Rory, so brave, loyal and funny. He's a top companion who really earned the Doctor's respect, not afraid to stand up to him and deliver a few home truths. He's a very rounded, level headed character, and really complimented the outgoingness of Amy and the flamboyance and exuberance of the Eleventh Doctor. He was great in Night Terrors, and it was great to see him and Amy on their own for a bit so we could really so how the clicked together. They were both great with the Doctor too!

Torn between The Unquiet Dead, The Crimson Horror, and Robot of Sherwood. All episodes are good fun, particularly the latter, but I'll rule Robot of Sherwood out because the plot is a bit feeble, and while Ben Miller was great, I thinks he's been a tad underused. He could have done more, given the chance, but then it was never going to be a huge role. I'm really, really torn between The Crimson Horror and The Unquiet Dead. Both are great, solid episodes, with plenty of laughs and quite dark themes. Matt and Eccleston's Doctor's are both brilliant, and while Matt isn't in it for the first part, the Paternoster Gang really fill the void well, giving them a chance to shine and show us that they could handle a spin off in my opinion. Both companions are kidnapped, and Clara is in her episode substantially less, but she works out something key to solving the problem, so that's a point for The Crimson Horror. I loved seeing Charles Dickens in Doctor Who, so that's a point in The Unquiet Dead's favour. I prefer the direction in The Crimson Horror, and the effects, I love the flashback scene. I think Mrs Gillyflower is a much better villain than the Gelth, I think she's brilliant; batcrap crazy, and no chance of remorse! So I think I'll go with The Crimson Horror; it's a very good story, with great characters at the heart of it. Very close, but I'm going with The Crimson Horror. :)

I'd like to give Tom Riley a bit of well deserved credit for his performance. He was awesome as Robin Hood, it's not easy to play a character like that in this style of an episode. He really embraced the character and all the silly, cheesy aspects to it, and the way he did it he didn't come across as annoying, he was really likeable and hilarious. I love his reaction when Clara comes out of the TARDIS "Are there any more in there?" XD You could just tell that Tom had so much fun being in Doctor Who and playing Robin Hood. He was really well rounded too; you could see (and it was touched upon by Clara) that all his laughing and cheery bravado was a façade, and behind the smile was a hurting, sad man who longed for the woman he loves. Tom was brilliant, and was the right side of cheesy. His version of Robin Hood was brilliant; he brought the role to life in a great way. Tom is a terrific actor, and had great chemistry with Peter and Jenna. Robin is a great character, and while it won't happen, I wouldn't be disappointed if we saw him again.

@Planet of the Deaf @LGwalchmai95Same, he was a really good character. And I agree, there aren't many male characters who a strong from the off, they tend to grow into it as they gain confidence and find their feet.

I want two full time companions after Clara, I think the dynamic works really well, and it adds another character in the mix for the Doctor to bounce off. Two best friends, a new male and a female would do me nicely. Plus, the banter would probably kill Capaldi! XD

I hope not, I really didn't like Journey. I'm not a fan of the actress and the character just irked me. I would definitely like a soldier companion, which is a reason why I want Danny to stay on. It would be something different and could go in many different directions. It also shows us how the Doctor impacts people. Look at Ross, the Tennant's Doctor had a massive influence on him in the short space of time they were together. Also Riddell (I know, not a soldier, but he was someone who's instinct was to use violence and kill), you could see Matt's influence on him; at the start of the adventure he's prepared to stab a Dinosaur in the throat and kill it, but over the course of the episode he removes his hat as a sign of sorrow and respect when Tricey is killed, and uses anaesthetic on the dinosaurs he faces with Amy. The Doctor has a massive influence on everyone he meets, and I think it would be nice after the whole "taking ordinary people and turning them into soldiers/weapons thing" for the Doctor to take a soldier and have a positive influence on them, and make them not resort to violence, and show them there is another way and they can think for themselves, not just act on orders. This may sound like I'm bashing soldiers, but that's not my intention. I have every respect for soldiers and their work. Anyone brave enough to put their life on the life for a good cause has my respect.

@Antee991166 @LGwalchmai95 Well Cold War was only her second proper trip, and going into a room on your own with an Ice Warrior that then started picking everyone off would make you pretty nervous aha! And in Nightmare she was put in charge by the Doctor, it don't think it's inconceivable that she has leadership qualities about her. Anyone can step up and be a leader when it counts. For example James Milner (footballer) is a pretty quiet guy off the pitch according to team mates, but when he's on the pitch he's barking orders at everyone and giving instructions! So I just feel it was her stepping up and doing what the Doctor said.

Good article. I'm really fed up of people criticising Clara in Series Seven though. All of the features to her character people are praising now have always been there, and I can't get why people can't see it. Fair enough, if you don't like her, you don't like her. Fair do's, but I don't get the criticisms of her character being like too perfect and stuff like that, her flaws have always been there. If you look, her need for control in present in practically every episode of Series Seven. Sorry for the mini rant, I just hate seeing the character criticised for problems that just aren't there. Granted, if you find Clara irritating, boring or whatever, fair enough, but I don't get the slagging off of the character. 

Anyway, what I love about Clara is her caring nature; she always wants to help people and bring out the best in them. Be it, the Doctor, Robin Hood, Merry, Danny etc... I love her scene with the Sheriff (seriously, I think Jenna would be a brilliant Doctor!), her first chat with Robin about him being sad. Her scene with half-face was truly memorable though, the best scene in that whole episode; seeing her keep her faith in the Doctor, and brilliantly get a reaction and information out of Half-Face. I love that she wasn't brilliant because she did hide her fear to save herself, she embraced it, she was amazing. Jenna's brilliant though, by a mile the best actress we've had, she steals every scene she's in, and lights up the screen. I look forward to seeing even more from Clara, it's nice to see her friendship with Capaldi's Doctor going from strength to strength. Jenna/Clara have been the best thing about this series in my opinion, she's shone. Absolutely awesome! :)

@The Listening Cat Hope you enjoy it :) Eccleston is an absolutely amazing Doctor in my opinion.

The series as a whole is a very solid one, Father's Day is a proper emotional roller coaster, and one of my favourites from that series. As is Bad Wolf/Parting of the Ways, I don't think there's a bad episode necessarily from Series One, but some are far better than others I feel. :)

I love Into the Dalek. It had a great balance between lighter and darker moments I feel, Capaldi and Coleman were both stunning, getting the chance to show us their great chemistry for the first time as a pairing, with Capaldi fully settled as the Doctor (no post regenerative madness). I think the ideas were brilliant, going into a Dalek is a fascinating idea that was brilliantly brought to life. The miniaturisation looked really cool too. There was great comedy moments too, some cracking lines. Capaldi and Clara's relationship was a highlight though, you could really see how much he really does need her, trusts her and respects her opinion.Plus, Danny Pink was awesome! Love his scenes, Samuel and Jenna clicked and have great chemistry. So overall I'd say Into the Dalek was a brilliant, strong, confident follow up to Deep Breath. :)

Series 8 is really reinforcing just how much I love the character of Clara Oswald, she's been absolutely amazing again in the start to this series. Jenna really is doing a tremendous job, which will make it all the more sad for me personally if she leaves at the end of the series or at Christmas. She can do the dramatic stuff brilliantly, and has the ability to display a range of emotions, as well as being terrific at the comedic side too; her timing is brilliant. While I've enjoyed the series so far, I don't think it's amazing. I think it's been good, but I'm not absolutely loving it like I did with other series at this stage. Jenna/Clara have been the real stars of this series so far, and are the only reason I'm sticking with it, as I want to see how her story ends.

I think she could have escaped from the crack. She could have become fixated and obsessed with the Doctor from the other side of the crack. The Doctor is the salvation of Gallifrey, he saved them from Dalek destruction and in The Time of the Doctor, was the only hope of fully restoring them to the universe. So she could easily have become obsessed with the idea of this amazing man who's the only one who can save them. But he's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy! I don't know, I think she's connected to the Doctor in some way, kind of like the Dream Lord.

@supermoff of Sherwood I hope she's not a good character at heart, I like the baddies to just be plain bad. Be it like the cold and creepy Solomon, the Weeping Angels, Prisoner Zero or the batcrap crazy Mrs Gillyflower for example! We've had quite a lot of villains with redeeming qualities, and that ultimately leads to their fear factor going down as the years go by in my opinion. Like Romeo from Hide, the Silence, Skaldak, the main woman villain from Vampires of Venice, even the Daleks in some stories. The only real exception for me is John Simm's Master. But I much prefer having a bad guy that's just bad. It is nice to have well rounded villains on occasions, but having loads of villains turned good doesn't do it for me! :)

As a whole episode I think I prefer Into the Dalek. It was fast paced, energetic and good fun. Going inside a Dalek is a brilliant idea that was brought to life in a great way. In both episodes the Doctor is magnificent up against the Dalek, Capaldi and Eccleston both act their socks off. I think Eccleston acted better,, but then he had a bit more meatier material to sink his teeth into. I'll always love his first scene with the Dalek, some of the best acting I've ever seen. But I prefer the rest of the cast of Into the Dalek more than those in Dalek. I prefer Clara to Rose, in this episode and just, in general. I loved being introduced to Danny, he's a great character already. I slightly preferred Journey to Adam, but I'm not too keen on either of them. I prefer Rusty to the Dalek in Dalek. Dalek is an emotional, hard hitting episode, whereas Into the Dalek is a bit more light hearted I find. Both are amazing episodes, but I do find myself leaning towards Into the Dalek. It was a very tough decision though, and I thought I'd give a bit of love for Into the Dalek, as I'm sure Dalek will win easily! :)
